astronaut mark kelly as well as wayne lapierre the head of the national rifle association and we will try to separate reality from rhetoric and get into what would work and what would work in their various arguments and there've been new developments we have that picture that's gone viral of the president skeet shooting at camp david. presque isle the american sniper who was killed yesterday in a texas gun range. the story continues to build >> it's a chris gives the rundown because there have been so many different pieces to this and calls for action proposals. what measures are making their way to the dock it's now? >> there hasn't been a formal -- yes, senator feinstein is passed legislation were offered legislation. it isn't really going to the process. they just had hearings. there are three major proposals and i'll give you a morning line as two where they stand. first is the idea of an assault weapons ban like we had for 10 years starting in 94. diane feinstein proposing that. that we'll have the hardest time passing. there are some indications the white house realizes that we'll h
. >> reporter: that's wayne lapierre in 1999. he, of course, is basically the chief voice of the nra still today. he was on fox news sunday, this morning. he was indicating his opposition to universal background checks. obviously. it's not what he said in 1999. his fear is there would be a gun registry and the government would insert itself in what should be a private matter for individuals. >> that radical change of thought. you know the picture that jay carney tweeted, a lot of people were talking about it. >> reporter: there were a lot of people talking on it. if you go on social media, i'm sure you heard about the skeet shooting. we reached out to the nra after that photo was put out. one picture does not erase a lifetime of supporting every gun ban and every gun control scheme available. the white house would challenge that characterization of the president's policies on guns. he is a strong supporter of the second amendment. >> many thanks as always. >>> new on "meet the press," panetta gave his confirmation to chuck hagel. >> the political knives were out for chuck hagel. what disappointe
was shot with a bullet after round number 13. >>chris: as you know, wayne lapierre will be on the next segment and he says we had an assault weapons ban for 10 years. it didn't work. >>guest: well, i don't know if it worked or not. i haven't looked at all the statistics. much more difficult forat if it criminals and the mentally ill to get assault weapons and lie-capacity magazines and guns in general, we will save lives. i served in the military for 25 years. i know the value of having an assault weapon. a gun that can kill many people many quickly. i do not believe the average person on the shoot including criminals and terrorists should have easy access to those weapons. in cases of mass shootings when an assault weapon has been used we know we typically twice the number are shot so more people are died than injureed. there are already 9,000 federal laws on the books but they are not enforced. >> i agree with mr. lapierre on that point laws that are not enforced. 1.7 million have failed background checks since 1999 and not enough are prosecuted. they should be prosecuted and there s

. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> america can do this. for us. >> the point of that is that wayne lapierre, the nra head, now is against universal background checks. specifically he said this morning that they could lead to a universal registry of gun owners, something he says the nra opposes. >> peter alexander from 1600 pennsylvania for us. thank you, sir. >>> a reward for information in the sleiaying of a chicago teenager is at $40,000. there was a march saturday in memory of hadiya pendleton. the 15-year-old was shot and killed tuesday in a park with her friends. i want to bring in reverend al sharpton, host of msnbc's "politics nation." also president of the national action network as well. let's talk about hadiya first. recently got back from washington. she just performed at president obama's inauguration. for folks who don't know the story, who aren't familiar with this little girl, what can you tell us? >> 15 years old, honor student. as you said, performed at the president's inaugural festivities. went home, was on her way in a month or so to paris. and was killed. apparently sta
